When it comes to filling a retro home, the Quilda midcentury modern furniture range at La Redoute has it all. Discounted right now too.
This has been the pick of the big street retro furniture ranges for some time, both in terms of style and depth. It increases pretty much every season.
That’s not always a good thing. After all, quantity never beats quality. But the Quilda range has a strong, consistent look, one that is inspired by the mid-20th century.
So if you are looking to fill a house that takes its cues from the 1950s and/or 1960s, this is a range to check out, especially with La Redoute currently discounting – most of the range has considerably dropped in price.
The common theme across the range tends to be the natural oak finish, as well as the signature midcentury modern touches, whether that’s the tapered legs, the subtle curves or the handle detailing. Most, if not all the range, could pass for original pieces.
As I said, quite a wide range too. Some ranges for a midcentury modern home tend to focus on specific spaces, but the Quilda range reaches a little further.
Yes, you get everything you are likely to need for a living room, but the range is also able to kit out your bedroom too, add a retro touch to your hallway and with a bathroom cabinet here, you can also add a midcentury touch to that space as well. If they did kitchen units, it would pretty much be a full house (but sadly, they don’t. At least, not yet).
So you are looking at classics like the sideboards and the coffee tables for example, as well as a wall desk, a plate rack/dresser, a dining table, console table, two sizes of TV storage unit, a vanity unit, a bathroom cabinet, different styles of bed, a large wardrobe, an equally substantial set of drawers and bedside tables, both freestanding and wall-mounted.
More recent additions include two styles of desk, a bench, a side table and a dining table. That pretty much covers everything you will need in a house.
The images here hopefully get across the look of the designs and give you an idea of just how they could fit into your retro space. I think most are pretty adaptable, whether you have a period house or not.
As for price, well as I said, they are discounting big right now, so a great time to buy if you can spare anything ahead of the Christmas shopping season. When I say big, I really mean it too.
Discounts carry between 25 per cent and 55 per cent off right now, depending on the choice of item. That’s quite an impressive drop.
As a guide, coffee tables are now from around £138 with the discount, sideboards from around £419 and beds are from £349. But note that pieces from the collection do come and go quite a lot, so if something isn’t there now, just keep an eye on the range for when it comes back. Most things tend to. Also, have a browse of the retailer’s site for the full set of prices and the full set of images if you have a spare few minutes.
Of course, you could buy vintage, but it would probably cost you more and to be honest, visitors might not know the difference.
